Ruben Selles’ side were determined to clinch three points from their EFL Trophy match against Swindon and they ultimately emerged victorious with an emphatic 5-0 win.


The Royals have started their league campaign this season poorly and they are now hoping to gain momentum from the win.




Flynn stressed that he had to look to some youngsters for the match as the Robins have a tough run of fixtures ahead.


Reading, on the other hand, have a long break before their next match and could field a stronger side than the Robins.



And Flynn highlighted the fact as a key reason for his side struggling in the EFL Trophy match.


It was a game which enabled me to have a look at the squad players who have not been playing regular football, in a more intense environment“, Flynn told Swindon’s in-house media.



I had a good look at some of our youngsters, to finish the game with seven players 17 or under it was good going.


“Some of them put in a really good shift and caught the eye in small aspects.


But it is tough against a Reading team who are able to play a lot stronger squad than we are because they are in the international break.


Reading want to utilise the international break to freshen up and prepare well as they are eyeing climbing the league table moving forward.
